*UPDATE*Duct Tape Used in Theft of 23 Goats in Hawaii

September 23, 2013

HONOLULU, HI (AP) — More than 20 purebred goats— most of them pregnant — were stolen from a Hawaii farm on a full moonlit night, with duct tape used to keep the animals from making noise, their owner said.

Sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning, 23 goats valued at a total of about $10,000 were stolen from Kahuku Goats, a 250-acre, (101-hectare), farm on Oahu's North Shore, said owner Keal Pontin. Two bucks were left behind with ropes around their neck and duct tape over their mouths, he said Monday.

"It was devastating to us," said Pontin, 23, who has been goat farming with several friends for about a year. "We're going to find these guys."

Twenty-one of the goats were pregnant and 10 of them were days away from giving birth. "If you think about it, they're taking nannies with babies in them and throwing them over a 6-foot-tall fence," he said. "Just thinking of our pregnant goats going over a fence like that is just sickening to us."

Pontin suspects the thieves watched the farm, got to know their routine, then waited for the light of a full moon. "To haul that many animals out ... they had to have help," he said. "This was a production. They came in on a full moon."

Six of the goats were pets, bottle-fed from birth. One of them is named Kiwi and was about to give birth. "She grew up in our arms, following us around the farm, feeding her," said Pontin. "That was the most important one to us. She was like our family."

Pontin contacted police and is offering a reward amount that he doesn't want to disclose. The case has been classified as second-degree theft and police are following up on leads, said Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman Michelle Yu.

"I just want my animals back," he said. "We love farming. We love ranching. This is our passion."

A September 20, 2013, photo provided by farmer Keal Pontin, shows two goats that were left behind by thieves, bound, and duct taped at the Kahuku Goats Farms on the island of Oahu in the county of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Uh oh! I hope someone isn't having their way with the goats! I picture an illegal goat prostitution bust in the making ;) Hard to resist them in the glow of a full moon!

*UPDATE*

September 26, 2013

More than 20 goats, most of them pregnant, were stolen last week. The thieves left these two goats duct-taped.

Honolulu police have released a suspect and made two more arrests in the theft of more than 20 purebred goats from a Kahuku farm.

The Honolulu Police Department said in a statement that a 25-year-old who was taken into custody on Tuesday was released Wednesday pending investigation.

One of the men arrested Wednesday for livestock theft is from Mililani and the other is from Waianae, police said.

The owner of the Kahuku Goats farm says more than 20 purebred goats were stolen between Thursday night and Friday morning. Keal Pontin believes the thief used duct tape to keep the animals from making noise.

Pontin suspects the thieves watched the farm, got to know its routine and then waited for a full moon to steal the animals.

Twenty-one of the goats were pregnant and 10 of them were days away from giving birth.

Police haven't recovered any of the stolen goats.

Lived on Oahu for a year--where the hell do you hide that many goats on a damn island, it ain't that big.
